Flippin’ history

What the flip is going on? The Conservative Clown Corps (aka Florida Republicans) are attacking Charlie Crist with old sound bites and kazoo tremolos for his perceived “flipping” as if it were a bad thing. Throughout history, there have been revered flippers: Saul of Tarsus becoming Paul the Apostle on the road to Damascus, George Washington fighting on American soil — first for the British and then against them, and Ron Reagan changing his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican. Clearly, dogma (more than consistency) is the hobgoblin of little minds.
